About the talk

In conversation: Adaptive leadership

- SFJAZZ Center

Leadership is rarely easy. It is often the role of the leader to steady the ship, to help provide clarity in times of uncertainty. But how do we adapt to these changes? How do you stay resilient along the way?

Katie joins us for a conversation about adapting to changing landscapes based on experiences of...

  • Switching modes from rapid hiring to reducing team size and hyper-prioritisation.
  • Merging marketing creative and product design to build coherency to the customer journey.
  • Leading organisations through different stages of maturity from startups, to pre-IPO and beyond.
